How Time Flies

Saturday, December 11th, 2010

I’m almost certain I’ve posted something with a very similar title before… but the truism is even more true when you’re taking care of two little time-suckers – I mean children. Much has come and passed in the past three months.  Desmond is now a full-fledged walker.  The grin on his face when he toddles […]

A Photographic Frenzy

Friday, August 20th, 2010

Well, really just quite a bit to catch up on, since life has been busy enough to take many pictures, thus leaving little time to upload them.  Totally understandable. There are many more pictures in the July album, cataloguing a few birthday parties, a great visit from Grandmere, some birthday cakes, outdoor fun, and much […]

The Travelling Annetts

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

Another long hiatus, and many more details in our ever exciting lives… We returned safely from Orlando, tired but intact. It was my first -certainly not last- trip where I truly realized that travelling with children is all of a sudden not very relaxing. Well, there are relaxing moments, but it is definitely not restful. […]

Thought I should share this

Wednesday, April 28th, 2010

Miranda sent me this message yesterday and it plastered a smile on my face: Sophie has dressed her doll up in Desmond’s socks (“aukz, aukz”), one of his coats (“teeet! teeet!) and then put it’s feet in a pair of your shoes (“le shoo, le shoo). Hoping to make you smile, love Miranda

We all know how time can fly…

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

Well, well. Another month gone by. I honestly mean to post more often, but time is a pretty valuable commodity. It’s not that I’m run off my feet (most days) but to find a chunk of time when I can sit quietly and put together a narrative is not so easy. Life is busy, caring […]

Almost 4 Weeks into the Latest Experiment

Friday, January 22nd, 2010

Yesterday I got to experience the difficulty of trying to cook dinner with a crying baby who wants to be held and a 1 1/2 year-old girl who wanted to be held, fed, played with, chased, and read to.  Dinner did get made, though in a slightly more distracted way than usual. Sophie does love […]

What the Family is up to.

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

Well, winter has set in… or has it? Who knows these days. As I write this, it is snowing, but it’s supposed to be +20 in three days. Funny funny. We greatly enjoyed our garden this year, as evidenced in past posts. I didn’t get around to harvesting all of the herbs before this cold […]

After Another Long Break…

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2009

We’ve been so busy living life these days that I haven’t taken the time to write about it. We’ve taken a few more pictures recently though, and it’s always a good excuse to write a post to go along with a new photo uplaod. Sophie is doing very well, she’s adjusted nicely to the day […]

Another Exciting Month

Sunday, August 16th, 2009

Ahh, it has been a month since the last post… time sure flies in the summer. Casa Annett has been quite busy, our outdoor renovations are now complete, the yards have been transformed. It looks so amazing, almost like a different house! It all started with a patio and snowballed from there. Once we made […]

Alot has happened…

Wednesday, July 15th, 2009

… since Harry’s post spreading the news that our little one has become a biped. Over the past couple of weeks Sophie has really been getting the hang of walking, now she’s upright most of the time. She even ran across the room yesterday, our fearless one! One of the reasons we’ve been incommunicado is […]
